Most of our assumptions have outlived their uselessness. Marshall McLuhan
Change. It seems simple enough. And yet we’re all bogged down by the potential and possibility it presents. Too often, when faced with an opportunity to change, we find ourselves grasping onto the familiar, discrediting the forward momentum with the deadly phrase “But, it’s never been done that way before.” Unfortunately, this attitude will kill the world. And to make sure this doesn’t happen – to put change out there as the only viable option for a better world with improved practices in international development and fewer social justice issues – Why Everything Must Change (yChange) was born in 2008.
A conference aimed at providing attendees with the information and tools to make positive, sustainable change a reality, yChange encourages, empowers and equips participants to let go of their inhibitions and work towards making a difference in their world. The jump may be huge, it may look like a small step, but if it’s forward, then we’re all moving in the right direction.
If you are tired of the negative dialogue concerning the state of the world, then join us for yChange Vancouver 2011, on Saturday September 24. There you’ll be challenged by some local and international changemakers, and meet like-minded individuals ready to band together and change the world.
